| Eminent Science Fiction
Professional film critics are stupid. That is the conclusion you must reach after watching this movie. I was not expecting much after reading the uniformly negative critical reviews. But I was surprised. The movie is plausible. It is more than plausible, it is realistic. And the acting is so eminent that you are there yourself trying to decide what you would do if you awoke on a fully autonomous spaceship trying to figure out what is going on.

Granted, there are no alien horror creatures, no protracted fast-action sequences, no superficial technical nonsense to cover a thin plot. Maybe this is what the critics were missing.

There is only beautiful scenes, eminent acting, a plausible plot and a surprising ending. But that was enough for me.

So go watch this movie and decide for yourself how implausibly stupid the film critics are.

Trivia

When Jim and Aurora first have a drink in the bar, the bartender--a robot or hologram--there's only the upper half of him, says, "I cried because I had no trousers, but then I saw I had no legs!" is a reference to an old folk saying, "I cried because I had no shoes, until I met a man who had no feet" - a caution to express gratitude, regardless of one's circumstances.


Quotes

Wake-up Hologram: Good morning, James. How are you feeling?
Jim Preston: Wait. What?
Wake-up Hologram: It's perfectly normal to feel confused. You just spent 120 years in suspended animation.
Jim Preston: What?
Wake-up Hologram: It's okay, James.
Jim Preston: It's Jim...
Wake-up Hologram: Jim.


Goofs

At the end of the film, when the Avalon is seen approaching Homestead-II, the ship is seen to have its engines facing away from the planet, but still operating. Assuming its course included a long stay, the engines would have need to be turned in the direction of travel - not only for reducing speed for safe orbital-insertion, but about halfway through the voyage, as as much time would need to be taken to decelerate as was taken accelerating.

But if its course was to slingshot around Homestead II's star without planetary orbit, it might need to continue thrusting in the direction shown.


Crazy Credits

The first half of the end credits feature images of celestial objects in space, such as nebulas and galaxies.
